Vigouroux to return to Swindon


    Goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux will continue his loan spell with Swindon Town.

    VigourouxThe twenty-one year old looked to be on his way back to Anfield after paying a late fine of £50 with penny coins.

    But he has now apologised to Mark Cooper, manager of the League One club, and will be heading back to the County Ground.

    “He is going to come back. He is very humble, very apologetic and knows the way he behaved was wrong.” Cooper said.

    “He has apologised to the rest of the boys. I asked them the question, ‘do you want him back?’ and to a man they all said yes.

    “The one thing about Lawrence is that he is an exceptional young goalkeeper and it is important that he learns from this little mishap and it will help him in his career going forward.

    “I thought it was brilliant banter, but in the context it was the wrong way to go about it. Lawrence was desperate to come back and was very apologetic, so we have given him a second chance.

    “He will be grateful for that and I’m sure it will make him a better professional in the years to come.”

    Swindon have released a statement clarifying the situation.

    “Vigouroux was late to a training session last week and was subsequently withdrawn from the starting XI against Colchester United.” it reads.

    “After the weekend, he was called to a meeting in Liverpool by his parent club’s academy staff to explain his actions.

    “Following on from this meeting, Vigouroux has now returned to SN1 and will be available for selection again by Swindon Town this weekend. Contrary to reports, his loan agreement has not been terminated.

    “The club considers this disciplinary matter to have now been dealt with and would like to move on swiftly.” the statement concludes.
